In order to better represent the biology of human genetic disease,
GDB now contains links to entries in the Human Gene Mutation Database
The HGMD contains "known (published) gene lesions responsible for human
inherited disease"(Cooper & Krawczak,1993, Human Gene Muation).
There are currently 551 GDB gene entries with a link to the corresponding
mutation entry in HGMD. This number will continue to increase as the
content of HGMD grows.
To access these links:
Search by "Gene Name or Symbol" (e.g. PAX6) and choose "Other Links"
under "Links to external databases".
Choose "External Links - Human Gene Mutation Database: gene symbol" on
any gene entry.
Much thanks to Iain Fenton (HGMD) for working with us to provide the
links and David Cooper and Michael Krawczak for providing this excellent
